As I watched the movie 13 days one of the main motivating operations that were presented was the missal that was being conduct by the Cubans. This was a motivation operation because it made the Kennedys act on the situation right away to protect the country. Through this situation they had to make decisions that were very difficult and immediate. For example, when the president had to either bring the sub to the surface or leave it under water. In that situation this decision can value or change the behavior in seconds. He made the decision that he thought was best so that the Cubans will back off in the end of that situation it worked, some of the boats turned around and surrendered. To make this difficult decision he was given a couple of days to come up with options that would be best for the country when the outcome later was made. As the president made his decision on how to come about the missal in the first place worked as it went into effect, but it did take some changes to make it work and in the end benefited the outcome.
As the president made his decisions some of the people that helped him make the decision didn’t agree with what was finial. So some people had gotten disrespectful to the president and letting him know he was making a mistake. One of the times he was told this was the only way when they were in the conference room with the sergeant and his other folks and told him that firing their weapons was their only option. The president refused and knew there had to be another option. When the president’s team came up with another option which was talking to the Cubans first before further damage to the situation, there were people who were on board and some who weren’t. The president decided to chose the talking decision first and some still thought it was the wrong choice. There were a couple disputes able, but the decision was finial regardless if there were people who didn’t think so. The president wanted everyone to see it doesn’t have to end in a bloodshed he would rather it end in the most peaceful way possible so the not only the people of the U.S looks good, but also safe.
